Camera trapping on safari - a huge hit

One of the highlights of our safaris is the chance to place your own camera trap out in the bush at a spot where you think you might photograph a leopard. We have been using camera traps as part of our research for over fifteen years and know a thing or two about camera trapping, so you're in safe hands.
Camera traps are now universally used by wildlife researchers and filmmakers. You may have seen the amazing camera trap footage that the BBC achieved of snow leopards, shown in the first episode of the new Plant Earth II series. Join us on safari and try it for your self. www.ontracksafaris.com
Camera Trap images above are taken from our network of camera traps, in this case from the Thaba Tholo Reserve.

Fun at the Orphanage continues

As many of you will know, this year we have had great success with our Saturday morning conservation club at the EVOC orphanage near Acornhoek South Africa.
These children face many challenges in life, beyond that which most of us can comprehend, yet here (as you can see) they can have some fun and enjoy life.
So much so that we have decided to recruit a local teacher to continue this program.
There are several ways that you can contribute towards our community education programs. You can join us on safari, the profits from which help to fund this work. Or you can make a donation via our UK charity www.ontracksfoundation.org

How do we keep our prices low?


Even in these uncertain times, we have not increased our prices for our 2017 South African Safaris, making our safaris exceptional value. We're often asked why our South African safaris are offered at such a low price? The answer is very straightforward...When you come on safari with us, you come are on safari with us not a third party. There are no middlemen or agents taking their cut, meaning you pay the real price for your safari.
